Disposable Males

By on October 21, 2017

You were born with a Y chromosome, mutilated at birth, mutilated at birth
Gender assigned as male can’t you see, it determined your worth, determined your worth
Other men taught me to keep emotions inside, don’t let them betray you, big boys don’t cry
They said be strong, heart made of stone, you have to stay hard until the day you die
They said
Come one day, you will see, what it is to be me

You’re a disposable male, the world wants you to fail, but remember you can never let go
You’re a disposable male, and life hangs on a rail, so get ready when you see the blood flow

The notice came in the mail at 18 and said you’re going to war, yes, going to war
No, wars are never fought by the rich man’s son and they fall on the poor, yes, they fall on the poor
Dropped in a desert, with a rifle at my waist, terrorizing the people of another land
The old vet said don’t show any mercy you must be brave and leave their brains in the sand
He said
Come one day, you will see, what it is to be me

You’re a disposable male, the world wants you to fail, but remember you can never let go
You’re a disposable male, and life hangs on a rail, so get ready when you see the blood flow

Don’t try to deny, it’s a matter of fate, ask and you’ll see it’s always been this way
There is no escape for the role that you take, just try to hold on and die another day

The factory accepts your toils for a wage, and it’s breaking your back, yeah breaking your back
A rich man’s son, in charge, half your age, won’t cut you no slack, won’t cut you no slack
Home at night, nursing aches and pains, ain’t living no life of ease and luxury
Sacrificing your health to support your family you take your young son up upon your knee
And you say
Come one day, you will see, what it is to be me

You’re a disposable male, the world wants you to fail, but remember you can never let go
You’re a disposable male, and life hangs on a rail, so get ready when you see the blood flow

You’re just another disposable male. No different than the rest, sad to say.
You’re just another disposable male. Put to the test, will you obey?
Disposable.
